Ostensibly as documentary in nature as his work on The Family of ManImage Storage Containers (2012) does something closely related in intention to Weber’s previous series and yet very different. On one level, it condenses, as Marie Muracciole has noted, two moments in the myth of photography as a “universal language”: the first involving The Family of Man-as-imperial project; the second, pho­tography’s sheer technicity as a mecha­nical means of reproduction, with all the attendant connotations of objective scien­tificity. Atop this interfolding of meanings one can discern two additional layers: the Image Storage Containers as a kind of “thought experiment,” an auto-pedagogical exercise in schematizing the human ner­vous system, and, a more polemical read, a proposition about the present conditions for viewing photographs within today’s networked image regime—at a moment when computer technologies, themselves predicated upon neuroscience findings on human perception and cognition, have precipitated a mass transformation of psycho-social behavior.
